IPWireless sees profitable second half

Keywords:product development  TD-CDMA  UMTS  3GPP 

IPWireless was the first vendor to offer commercial UMTS-based solutions for a number of global spectrum bands including the unpaired 1900-MHz and 2500-MHz bands, to offer an all-IP mobile broadband solution based on UMTS, and to offer a UMTS broadcast solution. The company has now delivered its 3GPP technology across five generations of ASICs that power devices from handsets, to USB modems, to PCI Express cards for embedding in laptops, as well as in other form factors.

Hambidge noted that the commercial trials of its TDtv technology with Orange and T-Mobile in London had experienced some delays while IPWireless was under the ownership of NextWave. The technology allows the mobile operators to deliver a range of multimedia services, including mobile TV, at a lower price point using existing, unused 3G spectrum. Hambidge said the company would start seeing a great deal of traction with that now. In any case, it has been a tough 12 months or so for mobile TV in general.

A deal with a tier 1 handset supplier for manufacturing a handset for TDtv is due to be concluded soon, and could be announced as soon as next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, said Hambidge. The base band silicon, software stacks and integration pack would be supplied by IPWireless, with the RF element coming from third party suppliers.
